    got a note from my sister who called and asked her camera repair shop. Says a gear is mostly broken and it would cost b/tween $150-$200 to repair. :(

    It didn't work for me. I keep trying to drop it and have had no change.

I just pulled my 320 out after not using it for 4 months and the lens extended and zoom error began flashing on the screen. After reading a few other post on the net about how much it cost I decided the camera was a goner. For good measure I banged it on my mouse pad a couple times and the lens suddenly retracted and it is now working fine. Doubt it will work very often but might be worth a try. Make sure you hit it on something soft to prevent other damage.

Zoom lens stuck out when turn on it says zoom defect


Here are some troubleshooting steps that you can try that may (or may not) correct it. They only seem to work for less than 40% of the lens errors, but if the camera is out of warranty (or repair cost approaches that of the camera), they're worth that try. Some of the later steps do involve some risk to the camera, so carefully weigh your options before deciding to conduct them:

Battery charger for olympus sp-320


The SP-320 uses standard AA batteries, disposable or rechargeable. If you want to use rechargeables, you should be able to find chargers at any department, electronics, or office-supply store. You can't use the camera itself as a charger, however.

Hi Ive got an Olympus SP-550UZ digital Camera


Hello

Thank you for using FixYa for your problem

Always check the batteries first but if is it still giving the same fault, your camera is faulty. "Zoom error" is repairable
It should be taken to an authorized repair centre for a repair estimate. Very few digital cameras have any user-serviceable parts.

Please rate our solutions and if you still have problems please call back for more ideas to help you

Thanks

Olympus SP-570UZ-zoom error


Had 570UZ for 2 weeks and "ZOOM ERROR" occured. Seemed hopeless. Changed batteries several times, bought new Alkaline.
No change. Finally decided that it is probably a connector problem.
Turned Camera Off. Held Camera by the lense barrel. Held palm of other hand and thrust the back of the camera ( LCD side) into the
other hand. The idea being to jostle the camera contents without cracking the LCD. Did this a couple of times, turned camera on and it works fine. At least for this evening. At least for now it seems like a classic component connector problem somewhere inside the camera.

Camera reads card error


Try this product: http://www.gorecovery.com/digital_photo_recovery_for_mac.asp PhotoRecovery worked quite well for me when my xd disk on my SP 320 started reading images funny. It recovered virtually all of my images and I was able to upload from my card reader to the computer. Will work on pcs as well.
